Psst…can I tell you a secret? Did you know that woman who stay out of the sun and wear sun protection when getting some rays is inevitable can look up to 20 years younger?! Crazy right?!
Just imagine how much you could save over time on expensive potions, lotions, lasers and peels trying to reverse aging skin when the answer to healthy, youthful looking skin was here all along! SPF everyday to keep the dermatologist away! Ok, ok, that was pretty cheezy, lol, but it’s true!
We are all guilty of getting too much sun at some point or another in our lives. Some more than others, like myself. Self admitted sun worshiper over here and I cannot express how much I regret it. (I can hear my mother now…I told you so!)
I was actually diagnosed with Melasma this past January after a sunny holiday in Mexico. No tan in the world is worth the re-prosecutions of having big dark spots on your face that take months, even years to fade. One day in the sun is all it took.
Fast forward 6 months, a concoction of prescribed creams and strict rules to stay out of the sun, I have now committed my self to wearing sun screen every single day (something I honestly thought I would never do) but is a small price to pay to keep those spots from coming back! And I know that in the long run, it’s going to help keep me looking younger longer, so I suppose its a blessing in disguise to my older self 🙂
Sun Bum products has become essential in my everyday routine as they have a sun protection product for every single need. They carry water resistant sunscreens for the face, body, lips and hair, and they come in a variety of SPF strengths and are available in sprays, lotions, and sticks. Sun Bum products are free of Gluten, Parabens, and Paba as well as being 100% Vegan and Cruelty free!
The face cream is absolutely wonderful layered under makeup. It is oil free, non greasy, and invisible on the skin! My sensitive skin has tolerated it with no problems or breakouts at all. I also really love the baby bum stick to apply to my face on no makeup days spent outside. I can quickly run the stick over my face as often as I like and the super-sensitive all natural formula doesn’t irritate my skin.
Another product I have been using is the 3-in-1 leave in treatment to help hydrate, protect and smooth hair. Made with Coconut oil, Quinoa protein and Banana pulp to name a few and let me tell you…..It is SOO good! My hair is left silky soft, smelling great, and best of all, protected from the sun!
Sun Bum has a complete line of Beach Formula Hair Care products specialty formulated with UV protection. Their Shampoo and Conditioner are next on my list that I NEED to try as i’m sure they make your hair smell like a tropical vacation. #HairGoals
Circling back to my Melasma journey, I can say that the Sun Bum products have successfully protected my face and kept my skin Melasma free!
